COVID goes to college

Universities across the U.S. are looking to different testing techniques to decrease the likelihood of Covid-19 spreads on campuses. At the University of Arizona dorm wastewater is tested regularly to determine if students in a specific building need to be tested and isolated. The University of Illinois uses a saliva test to screen students and staff for the virus and either approves or denies access to school buildings via a smartphone app based on each person's test results, or denies access altogether if no test was taken.
